Macro Monday | Memorial Day

Memorial Day is a day of remembering and flowers.  Remembering those we don’t know who have given up so much, even their life.  And those we do know, hold close to our hearts, who have touched our own.  Growing up Memorial Day always included a picnic and a trip to the cemetery with flowers in…

    Grace and her beads are so precious. How does Grant know how to pose like a Ralph Lauren model? I am loving his cuteness.

  • Could Grant look any more like a GapKids model??? That hat is crazy cute! And the beads…oh, the beads. Adorable!

  • Kimberly

    I love these pictures! Matthew was just looking over my shoulder and said, “Hey, that’s Grant!” They met each other at the father/son camp out and had a great time.

  • Several of those look like they belong in a magazine. Gorgeous!

  • These might be the sweetest ever. I don’t know if you dress Grant but he’s got such cool taste. I love the hats and his look. Such a handsome little guy.

This & That…School’s Out!

Grant, headed off to his last day of first grade yesterday!  Mark got up early and made him a special breakfast-German pancakes.  We are so proud of Grant, he’s come a long way this year, learned a lot, progressed even more (even if it wasn’t all fun for him), he came out smiling!  On his…
